Hello there

Played a few battles in the tier 6 Italian, didnt like it much and I hear even worse things about the tier 7..

I was thinking of free xp ing it to the elite Pantera.

Had a sluggish start with the premium Progetto, managed to 1 mark it and save the average to 51% or something after 100 odd battles.

Seems to me the Progetto starts to shine with better crew, just got BIA as second full skill and am at 40% of my 3rd one.

Thnks

The tier 6 is a turd for a number of reasons (mainly mobility, gun handling) which are fixed on the tier 7

 

The tier 7, while not being as strong as the T20 (less gun dep, 48mm less pen on prem shell) is one of the better tier 7 meds

I considered the T20 underperforming (its DPM mostly), Leo (smaller caliber) is much better for me.. So yeah, Pantera it is . Thnx man

Don't waste free XP.

Tier 7 is just better T20 - way more DPM, better gun handling (except aiming time) and some usable armour. And it can use v.stab too. You'll be winning most of your encounters with same tier mediums, light and lower tier tanks.

The only downside of this tank is bad APCR (still about the same as other tier 7 meds) and only 7 degrees of gun depression. Other than that, it's one of the best tier 7 mediums, especially those with higher alpha.

 

Just look how much free XP you need on Pantera... You can be done with P.43 ter in 6-8h if you use premium time and personal reserves.

Really pisses me off when WG do this, make a tank at tier 6 and crap on the stats, copy paste to teir 7 and buff the stats, change nothing else. da clone tanks so gut for game. we make same tank twice but cripple 1 so it "feels" like a new tank. lazy DEVS. just Type4/5 same thing diff numbers.

Pantera is just a progetto, but slightly worse in stuff that matters and better in stuff that doesnt ( armor mainly)

If you have played progetto, you have more or less played pantera.

The 2.5 interval between shots i find pretty lame for the Pantera, progetto is 2.0 and thats actually allot less than it sounds, major buff.

Its a lot on paper, but its hardly noticeable ingame. Same with the rest of the stats, 10m more viewrange, 1 degree more depression and gun handling.

But its still the same tank more or less, just slightly worse stats and expected dpg, so its better for e schlong enthusiast.

10 viewrange is a decent bit when vents/food/ ect multipliers happen. but eh.. 90mm paper med..

The Italian has base 300dpm advantage on the T20, I just think the extra gun depression & extra gold pen are more valuable

I'm on the Tier 6 at the moment but I can't work out whether the Italian line is worth the pain.   Don't seem to be many high spots in the line.

no point, all ITA top tiers are crap, they are unique same as sweds, but not even worth considering to play. just get the tier 8 prem if you want, its still better than tier 10 italian crap.
